This article is about the data collection of of weather in a preschool setting. The students are able to learn science practices, such as observing, collecting data and then seeing in there are any patterns in the data. The article is relatively short and concise. The lesson is very easy to follow and I like how the author plans out all of the materials needed to do the lesson.

This article explains how weather data collection in preschool introduces children to the science concepts of observing, collecting data and looking for patterns in that data. The explanation of the lesson is very concise and easy to follow. The resources are also very helpful. I particularly like the picture of a thermometer which has a picture of a cup of boiling liquid next to 100 degrees and a drink with ice in it next to 32 degrees. This is a great graphic learning model for students.
